Ellen DeGeneres


Ellen DeGeneres has been named the #1 most influential person among gay movers and shakers, out-influencing Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook. Out magazine named its Power 50.

Ellen moved up from the #2 spot last year. One reason, Out’s editors noted, was because it was “time to rethink how we ranked the profiles of the 50 most powerful lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in America” in terms of their business and cultural influence, power-brokering having changed “immeasurably over the last few years alone.”

Among the Power 50, we were also very happy to see Rachel Maddow and Brittney Griner included.

We recommend Yagg’s analysis of the selection, too.

Congratulations, Ellen!

Yours in good love and sex,

Nan & Christi

P.S. See all Fatale’s lesbian titles, what calls “the best lesbian porn.”

Brittney Griner

We were encouraged by Jason Collins’s brave declaration of his gayness this week. There was lots of kudos and congratulations buzzing about on Facebook and Twitter.

We also thank some friends for pointing out that Jason Collins was preceded in coming out in professional sports by Brittney Griner, pictured here, who told an AP reporter in an April 17, 2013 article for that she is a lesbian.

Thanks to Mother Jones calling this fact out.

Pro sports is better for both these brave declarations. We hope that sports in general and pro sports in particular continue to accept diversity within its ranks.
